Leinster Squad 21-22

Sounds like Ciaran Frawley will start at 10 for Ireland tomorrow. Jimmy O’Brien starting at full back with Joe McCarthy at loosehead lock.

Not watching the game, but checked the score and you got your wish [emoji23]

Re: Leinster Squad 21-22

The comments around Nick are definitely not virtue signalling. It may be reasonably normalised to have your sexuality widely known in every day life, it’s anything but in the world of male professional sport. You really don’t have to look too far back to see examples in other sports of how people we...

Re: Leinster Squad 21-22

Ed Byrne, Devin Toner and Adam Byrne selected for the Barbarians to play Spain it would seem.

Leinster exiles, where are they.

He grew up in Leinster and played for Leinster schools. Leinster is the most logical province for him to join. Tadhg Beirne grew up in Leinster and went to Leinster schools… if he comes, he’ll go where he’s needed, and that’s not Leinster right now. We already signed the guy who was keeping him out...

Leinster exiles, where are they.

Pretty certain he is eligible for Ireland. He discussed potentially playing for Ireland in an interview with RTE and refers to Ireland as “home”. Also, his contract appears to be up this summer and he doesn’t look like he’s getting his anew Zealand chance right now, so could be Munster bound after a...

Leinster exiles, where are they.

There's another political aspect about Jager. The system in Ireland says you do a year or two of sub-academy and then 3 years of low paid academy. Guys who go to market and leave after their leaving put huge pressure on the viability of that system. Preferential treatment of Jager would be decisive...

Re: Leinster exiles, where are they.

It’s not like he has been a huge success in Australia — 23 next week and has a total of 91 minutes of rugby so far. Worth keeping an eye on him but I doubt anyone is making a move for him just yet.

The trumpet? It was good and not cringey at all and I would have low tolerance in general for cringey stuff.

Re: Heineken Cup Dates 2022/23

Clermont are 1pt ahead of Toulon in the table. Doh! Not sure what the Ultimate Rugby app was showing me but I see now that Toulon miss out. :? The Ultimate Rugby app is absolute dog shît — the reason it has the tables wrong is because it counts the playoff games as league games and awards points fo...

Re: Leinster v La Rochelle Heineken Cup Final Sat 28th May 4.45 Marseille

In fairness, there are very few success stories of players leaving Leinster and having a great career. We have gotten it right almost always, Beirne is probably the only player I would have taken back given the chance. It’s a good record.

Re: Leinster v Glasgow URC Q/F Sat 4th June 15:15

Taking of Porridge, I was down by the port in Marseille before the game and Devin Toner was there taking pictures with the fans. A lad walked up to him to get a photo and Toner duly obliged but right after he turned to him and said, “f%~k off!” I was wondering what happened there until I realised it...

Also just want to add my appreciation for dougie, glad to have some new blood arriving and adding to the signal rather than the noise.

Re: Leinster v La Rochelle Heineken Cup Final Sat 28th May 4.45 Marseille

We’ve won 2 in the last 10 years. And made two other finals. Top two in 40% of the finals. No other club has made more finals than us in the last decade. And that was in a period of utter dominance by Toulon and then Saracens.

But you already knew that.

Not so far. Just rumoured as far as I know, but these rumours tend to be confirmed.

Re: Leinster v La Rochelle Heineken Cup Final Sat 28th May 4.45 Marseille

In Marseille now and feeling the heat in person, it’s going to be a factor for sure. It’s not going to be quite as warm tomorrow, but I wouldn’t fancy 60 - 80 minutes of top level pro sport in this weather.

It depends on where you’re living but I thought Bilbao was easy to get to. Direct flight from Dublin, was pretty cheap too as far as I remember. This year is the first time I’ve had any trouble making a final, and it’s the 8th one I’m attending. It’s an absolute clusterfuck of events all coming tog...

Re: A whiff of Cordite

Have to just love his bitterness! "This high-calibre international team — which masquerades as a European Rugby Champions Cup side". They don't say the same about Treviso or Edinburgh/Glasgow who must have a similar amount of internationals as Leinster That’s because they’re all missing t...
